Second Grade Field Trip!

This year we went to the Jackson Homestead in Newton with the second grade. Second graders get to visit this stop on the Underground Railroad and learn about the family who lived there. In this unit, we also learn about other famous people like Harriet Tubman, who helped to end slavery.

One of the books we read is called Henry’s Freedom Box. In this story, Henry, a slave, finds a creative way to get to himself to freedom. On the trip, the kids try out what it would be like to be in a box like Henry.

We teach the kids the importance of bravery and courage to overcome tough times. We want them to feel empowered to create change in the world when things are unjust.

To end the trip, the kids learned how to play a game called Graces, a game the Jackson family would have played.

Mystery Readers


We have had many mystery readers come into our classroom in June! A mystery reader is a surprise for the students because they do not know who is coming in to read to them and what book they will pick! I love to see the faces of the student when their parent, sibling or grandparent walks in!
